North Country School students-children in grades four through nine-provided the bulk of the labor for the morning's events. Student coordinator for the breakfast, eighth grader Ayanna Morel, recruited more than 70 of her peers to volunteer and organized them into work teams that made and posted signs, helped direct parking, greeted guests, worked in the kitchen, waited on tables, and led tours and other activities for visiting children. Student guitarists provided background music during breakfast.
"Ayanna did an amazing job of motivating the other kids to get involved," said Kelli Culpepper. "It was a wonderful morning from start to finish, and we're so glad that we had such a great turnout."
